Well That Sucks: Video Of A Guy Crashing His $35,000 R/C Jet Plane

June 6, 2017

This is a video of a guy crashing his alleged $35,000 custom-built twin turbine R/C jet plane. The video says it's 1/3 scale but it looks like it's actually smaller than that. Kind of like how my Tinder profile says I'm 6' 1" but when I show up for a date I'm actually 5'2" and wearing ski boots. Wait -- where are you going? "Your whole profile is a lie." I didn't lie about my eye color! "You said they were brown with red laser beams." God, you're right, I don't deserve companionship.

Keep going for the crash and burn.

Thanks to Rifter, who agrees any R/C plane that costs $35,000 better be able to carry a human.

    No wait! I think I saw a tiny parachute. Nah, sorry. It was a dandelion seed.

    Florida jet ski people.

    There wasn't a lick of English in that entire video.

    I was gonna make a joke about jet fuel and steel gators but it just doesn't work here.

    It's a pity that he killed the mini pilot and blew the 35g of hardware. Just think of how many drones he could have taken out.

    (Crash happens a little after the minute mark.)

    Y'know....if you're the kind of person who has $35,000 to spend on a hobby rc plane...then you're also the sort of person who has $35,000 to spend on another rc plane......so, meh.

    I was going to post the same thing. But I'd like to add that before the guy buys an expensive replacement plane, he should invest some of that spare cash in a gym membership, or at least a shirt.

  • GeneralDisorder

    I'm going to have to agree. A cheap jet that can hit around 300 mph is a scant $3500. Assembly required. You're gonna fly it carefully. You're going to do everything in your power to make sure it lands in a salvageable way. But if you don't know that crashes happen you shouldn't have gotten that deeply into the hobby.

    Edit: just did a quick Google to confirm price and speeds. I was way off. But now much closer
